Angélica Celaya and Harold Perrineau Talk ‘Constantine’ at Comic-Con 2014
Constantine premieres on FOX this fall and in preparation stars Harold Perrineau and Angélica Celaya stopped by to talk about what to expect from the new series.
Angélica Celaya plays Zed in the TV adaptation of the comic book, and she discussed how her portrayal will line up when compared to the character comic book saying, “I don’t want to be like Zed 100%, I want to give my interpretation of Zed, so I wanted to give Zed, what I think…between who I am at this point in the universe, with my life and what I’ve lived …who I think Zed is to me. So I think that’s a more honest approach to my character than trying to get be exactly what the comic book says.”
Harold Perrineau portrays Manny, Constantine’s guardian angel, and had this to say about his character, “I’m sent there [to Earth and Constantine] to, in Manny’s words, “look after him” and you know Constantine has a harsh relationship with demons and angels, so it’s not an easy relationship. It’s not something that he welcomes or wants, but he’s going to get it whether he wants it or not.”
He also hinted that his character is “restricted in some things that are classically religious things, but he’s not restricted in other things and he’s made a choice.” Hmmmmm…
